My son is 8 months old and is BF exclusively, except for the solids that he is on now. I am currently on the Depo Provera shot for birth control because I knew that it was ok to use while BF, but I am looking to try something different, but I do not want to change to something that is going to decrease my milk supply. I know that he is almost 8 months and I plan to BF til he is 12 months, and that is not much longer to last, but I am still worried about the supply going down. Any suggestions....also, another reason that I went on the shot was bc I was getting yeast infections after every period, so I would like something that is going to give me limited periods. I also don't like all the water weight that the shot gives you. Anyway..... if anyone has suggestions...that would be great!!!
